My Jin Shin Jyutsu Story: Digestion

Peter’s Jin Shin Jyutsu Story started when a colleague enthused to him about this Universal Art of harmonising the life energy in the body.

Peter writes:

I have been a homeopath since 1984. I first heard about Jin Shin Jyutsu when studying the Homeopathic Tissue Salts with a colleague.

She attended a Self-Help introductory workshop in London that same weekend and told me about it and how excited she was.

Three months later my journey in Jin Shin Jyutsu began.  

I studied The Touch of Healing by Alice Burmeister and then started my first of four (to date) 5-Day practitioner training seminars in September 2010.

The First Great Result with Jin Shin Jyutsu

My first really great result came when my wife and I visited friends in the South of France. They spoiled us the first evening we arrived; there was so much beautiful rich food, cheeses, pate and wine, none of which we were really used to consuming.  

By bedtime I suddenly realised that the meal was sitting like a stone in my guts! “Never going to get to sleep”, I thought to myself.

Luckily I remembered that holding the ‘points’ on the crease of both my elbows could relieve digestive problems. Astrid’s note on the exercise: Cross the arms. Then place the right fingers on the crease of the left elbow and place the left fingers on the crease of the right elbow. Relax the hands and hold until there is relief.

Sure enough, and without any exaggeration, within 5 minutes of starting to hold both these points I felt relief. I went to sleep, slept like a baby and woke up refreshed and feeling great!

My Jin Shin Jyutsu Story: Body Pain

Annemarie’s Jin Shin Jyutsu Story began about eighteen months from writing this, when over a period of three weeks, all the muscles in her body started seizing up.

Annemarie writes:

“I was in constant, acute pain. I could hardly lift my arms up. Getting dressed was a lengthy and painful business. Moving around and walking was done very slowly.

In fact, any centenarian would have looked spritely compared to me! My whole body felt as though I was being stabbed constantly, or at least how I imagine it feels like to be stabbed.

I can put up with a fair bit of pain, so I did for months, hoping that it would pass.

Any amount of Ibuprofen and Paracetamol I took had virtually no effect and I flatly refused to see a doctor who would only have put me on stronger pain killers or worse, steroids…..none of which I would have taken anyway!

When I finally could not stand the pain any more, I decided to take action.

I had heard from a friend that what Astrid did was ‘amazing’, but this friend didn’t know how, why, or what it was.

When I discovered that she works with the natural flows of energy in the body, it helped my decision because, years ago, I had benefitted from a very similar treatment.

After my first treatment with Astrid, I was 50% ‘converted’. Something had certainly happened, although I was still in pain.

The session thereafter went something like this.

As I lay on the couch she says:
“Now, on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the most pain, what do you feel?”
My face screws up with excruciating agony. I moan through gritted teeth: “11”.
“Ah”, she says calmly, moves her hands to another hold and then says: “How about now?”
In total amazement and disbelief I reply: “Virtually nothing.”

After that treatment I became 100% converted and luckily never experienced an 11 out of 10 pain level again!

I realise now that a Jin Shin Jyutsu treatment is totally painless for ‘normal’ people.

Although it took a while for me to reach this point, I am now a very fine tuned engine!

Some simple self help exercises and a monthly Jin Shin Jyutsu MOT keep me fit and pain free.”

Astrid’s notes on this case: 
I would like to clarify that I worked intensely with Annemarie over a period of about a year before we got to the no pain ‘maintenance’ phase. This was certainly no ‘quick fix’ case. She came to see me at least once a week, for a while twice a week to continue releasing especially the shoulders and managing pain – after all, there was much history on a physical, mental and emotional level to clear. Later on in the year, and when she felt she was ready for it, Annemarie also saw an osteopath. What her story illustrates is how her body reacted during the JSJ sessions. Happily, she stuck with the treatments and is now enjoying pain free gardening again.

Q&A: Jin Shin Jyutsu How To – The Pulse

Question: How does a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner choose which FLOW to use for the treatment?
Answer: Before the treatment, the JSJ practitioner listens to the PULSE. The pulse has all the information about the needs at that moment of the person receiving the treatment.

Question: How does one listen to the pulse?

Answer: The Jin Shin Jyutsu 5-day basic seminars include ‘how to listen to the pulses’. Mary explains the procedure in Text 2. The key is to LISTEN. The ART is to UNDERSTAND. There are many different tones, textures and rhythms in the pulse – learning to understand their meaning leads to mastering the ART of Jin Shin Jyutsu.
